  • Baseball: Bonds’ Hall of Fame...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — While eight women and four men sat in the jury box preparing to judge Barry Bonds, another group that will evaluate the home run king was watching and listening in the federal courtroom, sitting on the wooden benches in the last five rows. Their votes will not be cast for 20 more months.

  • Baseball: Hawks split a pair,...

    The Los Alamos Middle School Hawk seventh grade baseball team started its season winning three out of four contests.
    The Hawks opened their season April 9 splitting a doubleheader with Española. Two days later, the Hawks swept Taos Middle School, taking both games by scores of 11-1.
    Brian Johnson earned the victory in game two against Española as LAMS picked up an 11-9 decision. Connor Mang took the loss in the first game as the defense struggled with errors. LAMS lost 14-7.
    Against Taos, Lane Saunders was the winning pitcher in the first game and Derek Selvage earned the win in the nightcap. Michael Klegg and Kyle Hutton both pitched an inning in relief of Selvage.

  • Baseball: MLB replay usage may...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Shane Victorino charges hard from center field, chasing a sinking line drive. His glove, the ball and the grass all smack together at the same time. What’s the call?
    Next year, it well could be: Let’s look at the replay!
    Major League Baseball is leaning toward expanding replay for the 2012 season to include trapped balls and fair-or-foul rulings down the lines, a person familiar with the talks tells The Associated Press.
    Commissioner Bud Selig and a group of umpires discussed the extra video review at spring training and were in agreement, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter is still being discussed.

  • Running: Kratzer is tops at Pace...

    Sarah Kratzer was the top predictor at Tuesday’s Pace Race.
    The Pace Race is a weekly run hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners in various spots around Los Alamos County. The race was held in Bayo Canyon.
    Kratzer, running on the 3-mile course, not only finished with the best prediction but was also the first female to complete the course. Kratzer’s time of 28:55 was just five seconds off her predicted finish time.
    Ted Romero was 10 seconds off his prediction on the 3-mile course, while Georgia Pedicini was 21 seconds off and Tom Sandford was 23 seconds off.

  • Baseball: Bonds guilty on one...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Just like the whole Steroid Era: We’ll never really know.
    Even the one charge that left Barry Bonds a convicted felon didn’t specify steroids.
    Instead, a federal court jury found the home run king guilty of obstruction of justice Tuesday for giving an evasive answer under oath more than seven years ago. Rather than say “yes” or “no” to whether he received drugs that required a syringe, Bonds gave a rambling response to a grand jury, stating: “I became a celebrity child with a famous father.”
